Hanging Section Frame Dividers

These are used as separators between individual hanging section frames, they ensure an even and flat surface to the comb within each individual section.

These fall into two types:- 'Plain' or 'Ventilated' (also known as 'Slatted'). Each of these two categories is further subdivided according to the material used for manufacture or the method of construction.

The Plain Type...

Is either made from tinplate or thin plastic sheet (I have seen thin plywood versions, but the lugs tend to be rather weak.

The Slatted Type

If you have a supply of 'Birch' ply, (obtainable from aero modeling shops in many thicknesses from 0.4 mm up to 6 mm. It is good quality and quite strong, but is relatively expensive), 2.5 mm or 3 mm thick is best (another source is some forms of fruit boxes).

Slatted Hanging Section Divider

The gap in the centre of the slatted type can be 7 mm or 8 mm. The gaps between the slats themselves should be in the 7, 8 or 9 mm region.
